It is being said by one of the students that during a religious class, the teacher had gave everyone permission to sing what they felt comfortable singing and a group of students started playing kumina drums. The Myal which is a very common spirit to St. Thomas, overtook the children in the class and quickly spread throughout the school. As reported, a pastor was called and was unable to quell the Myall. The school then sent for a man known in the area for his spiritual practices to help and he was able to calm some of the students. The school closed shortly after and some students were said to have went home ”in the spirit of the Myall”.
